ParioPlan led an interdisciplinary team to develop the Benton Crossing Outline Plan for a new mixed use community core to serve a residential population of approximately 2,150. Based on planning principles and objectives contained in the West Lethbridge Phase II ASP, the Benton Crossing Outline Plan provided detailed planning for future land uses and densities for an area established as the “Community Core” for residents of West Lethbridge. The Plan promotes compact, higher density, mixed use development where residents can live, work, shop, play and learn.
Along with a range of public and civic facilities – including a joint high school site with a library and recreational facilities – Benton Crossing offers commercial / retail businesses, offices, multi-family housing, senior’s housing and a health clinic all integrated to promote a walkable neighbourhood. Benton Crossing caters to a diverse market, addressing the needs of smaller and larger families, seniors, couples, individuals, small business owners and retailers.
